Entangled Ecosystems: Exploring the Blooming Interest in Fungi

  • Thursday, July 27, 2023:9:45 AM - 10:05 AM
  • Room: Palos Verdes 1-5


Why are mushrooms among the fastest growing categories in dietary supplements? And why is fungi—indeed a kingdom of its own, as vast as the animal and plant kingdoms—garnering unprecedented attention across multiple societal spheres? Few have a closer eye on the matter than biologist Merlin Sheldrake, author of New York Times best-selling book, Entangled Life. In his book and his talks, Sheldrake brings tantalizing curiosity and compelling storytelling to the subject of fungi’s role in planetary evolution and human psychological and physical health. In his NBJ Summit keynote address, Sheldrake will bring attendees up to date on the diverse science of mycology while sharing insights into the growing public fascination with fungi.
